I think fantasy has suffered a little too much for being genrefied. There wasn't Fantasy when Tolkien or Dunsany were doing it, and after Tolkien fantasy was doing what Tolkien did, maybe cribbing from the pulps or from people who cribbed from the pulps too. If you weren't writing a pastiche you weren't part of the genre.
